In Response to re: SCARY MOVIES we will NEVER FORGET by kwitekontrary
While blood isn't a necessary ingredient to make a film scary, it is more and more common due to the increasingly visual orientation of society. The younger you are, the more literal the threat of death has to be - giving us the spate of slasher films.
Personally, I prefer the psychological scary films where you jump in your seat when the trauma strikes; the ones where you find yourself on the edge of your seat as the hero/victim goes down the wrong hallway.
Some of my favorites in that vein:
- Dracula (1992, w Gary Oldman)
- Cape Fear (1991)
- Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978)
- Ghost Story (1981)
- The Thing (1982)
- Cube (1997)
- Audition (1999-Japan)
- Vacancy (2007)
- They Live (1988)
And of course, the start of all the gruesome ones - The Texas Chainsaw Massacre from 1974 - still creepy as hell.
